  • Patent number: 11159489
    Abstract: A multi-link VPN link selection system includes a multi-link VPN server device that provides a VPN connection to application server device(s) for a computing device. The computing device monitors each of its network interfaces that each provide a respective link to the VPN connection and, in response, identifies one or more QoS parameters associated with each of those network interfaces. When the computing device receives data traffic from application(s) operating on the computing device, it identifies a network transmission requirement associated with that data traffic, determines one of the network interfaces that is associated with one or more QoS parameters that satisfy the network transmission requirements associated with that data traffic; and transmits that data traffic via that network interface and over the respective link provided by that network interface to the application server device(s) via the VPN connection provided by the multi-link VPN server device.
